Attached to the inside of the south pillar of this arch on the east side of Yonge Street south of Carlton Street is this 2011 Heritage Toronto plaque. This is what it says:
Plaque coordinates: 43.659910 -79.382417
This stone arch is from the former St. Andrew's United Church (built in 1923) on Bloor Street East at Park Road. The City of Toronto purchased the arch when the church was demolished in 1981. The arch was then rebuilt here as a pedestrian gateway, after the intersection of McGill and Yonge Streets was closed.
